Known as a force to be reckoned with on the endurance racing circuit, trail legend Ryan Sandes will be seen taking on the faster paced 15km Cell C Arabella Trail Run Challenge at the picturesque Arabella Hotel & Spa in Kleinmond on Sunday, 24 April 2016.

“It’s such a cool event, I really just wanted to be a part of it,” says Sandes.  “The fact that the weekend caters for both trail runners and mountain bikers is what makes it so appealing.  You don’t need to be a crazy endurance sport fanatic to take part.  The venue, surrounding area and trails are spectacular with some incredible views. It is one of my favourite areas to go to for a weekend away or break.  After a weekend of relaxing at the Arabella Hotel & Spa, 15km’s will be more than enough for me.  I am looking forward to hanging out with like-minded people, kicking back and having a good time.”

Although a keen mountain biker, Vanessa Haywood-Sandes has given in to temptation and entered for the 6km Cell C Arabella Trail Run Challenge.  “I’m not only a cyclist, I love trail running too.  As the event caters for both Ryan and my sporting abilities, we are able to spend the weekend together as a couple doing what we love.  I am really looking forward to some quality time with my husband.”
